The presidential campaign may have ended long ago, but that hasn't stopped former New Hampshire governor and Romney surrogate John Sununu from lobbing insults at President Obama.

Sununu appeared on Fox's America's Newsroom this Monday and accused President Obama of "inciting" birthers by planning a trip to Kenya this summer.

“I think his trip back to Kenya is going to create a lot of chatter and commentary amongst some of the hard right, who still don’t see him as having been born in the U.S.," Sununu said on the show "America's Newsroom."

"I personally think he’s just inciting some chatter on an issue that should have been a dead issue a long time ago,” he said.

Obama announced Monday morning that he plans to travel to Kenya in July to attend the 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit. Conspiracy theorists have long claimed Obama, who was born in Hawaii, was secretly born in Kenya and therefore is not legally qualified to be President.
